    My feet are terribly flat-footed. I'm not exactly sure why I made this thread, maybe a support group kind of thread? I don't know, but do you guys have problems with running or injuries? What shoes fit you best? etc etc etc

    I use the elliptical when I do any cardio, running on the treadmill makes my feet hurt.

    New Balance makes good running shoes for flat footed people. I've also heard good things about Asics but I haven't tried them. I wear New Balance and I also have a set of athletic insoles because I'm extremely flat flooted.

    Have a pretty good flat foot also. Nick is right about Asics, thats all I used for anything distance in Track and Field. My sprint spikes were always Nike and distance shoes were always Asics.

    You all only *think* you're flat footed.

    Went in for a flight phsyical and the doc was like...." hmm you have flat feet - that used to be a disqualifier - but now its just a 'variation of normal'"

    my arches are non-existant :(
